When a man raised in a 1950s era bomb shelter emerges into the outside world for the first time--to find a nice non-mutant girl with whom to repopulate the earth--meets a savvy, cynical modern woman, sparks fly, opposites attract and the result is a wondrous chain reaction in this romantic comedy for the nuclear age--Blast from the Past. Adam's (Brendan Fraser "The Mummy," "The Mummy Returns") hapless search in the brave new world of homeless people, adult bookstores and all-night supermarkets leads him directly into Eve (Golden Globe-nominee Alicia Silverstone "Clueless," "Batman & Robin," TVs "Miss Match"). She's suspicious, smart about survival and uncertain of the possibilities of love. Her life has been a series of dead-end jobs, shallow boyfriends and dashed hopes. But the more Eve watches Adam approach the world with wide eyes, comic miscomprehension, joyous delight and a deliciously sweet innocence, the more she begins to find herself falling ... in love?
